    Anything that isn't completely new and "extra" to the current offering almost has to be delayed if what is being redone is critical to ops for the coming season. Just too much unknown risk in...

    That is not necessarily true either. I've gone to Jay thinking they would get the goods, they didn't and the woods were rock solid ice moguls. Not much fun at all that day in particular and I've...

    Why on Earth would you get the Indy+ pass out East. None of the East areas are planning on blackout dates, save the $100!

    The family company owns Waterville, not Chris himself. He was the GM after the family bought it but gave that up when he got the Governorship. He has no direct personal ties to Waterville now. ...

    Only call they could have made. If Snowbird didn't feel they could manage crowds for skiing, no way Killington could on such limited terrain and one lift. Now we wait to see if we can open with...

    I know my last sizing, but I can tell you the toe box can vary greatly from brand to brand. I have found Atomics match my feet best, currently am in the White/Red Hawk Ultra 130. While I could buy...

    If Killington did reopen, it would be ugly. Snowbird (also a Powdr resort) has elected to not reopen as they feared too much pent up demand would flood the ski area and LCC. Mt. Bachelor,...

    Just curious, since you are an avid skier Hawk, have you ever driven for skiing through a storm and after said to yourself "Man, making that drive was dumb"?

    Yup, that is it. So SR opens early and goes 145 days, but SL opens a week later and goes the same 145 days then they would hit 152 and no credit for 21-22. I am assuming Loon wouldn't be the pusher...

    I suppose to some extent, yes. But I will say it again, ORDA's lifts are FG and much easier to assemble on hill than Detach lifts which is what most of the actual "Corporate" owner purchases were. ...

    I would guess it would be like Baldy, have to pre-reserve your time/ticket, even passholders (although they would just reserve a time and not have to buy a ticket).
